Nowadays using a production like database in unit1 tests is a common practice. Calling a real database can increase our confidence that a tested code actually works. Having said that a database, by its very nature, brings external state into a test that will affect its behavior, hence we need to pay special attention to prepare the test execution. There are couple of ways to handle the database state in tests and I’m going to describe an approach I like most.
Thoughts on management and team building
Let's take a quick look at one of the design patterns that should help us to write a good Object-Oriented code.
At Bright Inventions, we always try to keep focus on the bleeding-edge technologies and innovations. We are especially interested in cryptocurrencies and its prospective wide usage in the industry, not only as a payment method. We already have some experience with Ethereum and Hyperledger as a Blockchain-based app platform, so we were curious what can IOTA offer.
What satisfies your client?
Establishing a reliable continuous delivery and deployment process is often very important as it might greatly reduce the length of time needed for the validation and verification of the software product. This is also true for Android projects, especially the ones aimed at short time to market.
Do you think a web dashboard which communicates directly with Amazon Redshift and shows tables, charts, numbers - statistics in general,can work well? We believe it can, as long as the dashboard is used by a few users. As this was our case, we have decided to give it a go.
Let us assume we work diligently. But does it also mean we work effectively and efficiently? Do we spend eight, seven or (at least) six or five hours a day working conscientiously on our projects? And if someone asked whether we come into work with the intention to do our job best, would our answer be always YES?
Is there always a good moment to code? Have you ever asked yourself this kind of question? Have you ever felt that maybe you should take a break instead of writing a code, but you choose to code?
It was pleasure for us to take part in Summer Course “DisAPPear in Gdańsk”. Many thanks to Board of European Students of Technology for inviting us. We could share our knowledge with incredibly clever minds who came to Poland from different European countries. Hopefully, we managed to reveal some secrets about mobile app development to them.
